      I was just wondering...

      If i start a company, employ 10 guys, teach them to play SSS and pay them a certain amount would it be illegal?

      i know post a certain amount of time they would just go away but i was just wondering if its allowed or not...

      otherwise known as staking someone in cash games. you are just overcomplicating it. Would be legal.

      But i doubt it would work. Youd be better off getting a machine to do it. It wont take long for one of your workers to deviate from the strategy.

      I try to play MSS to the T but in a 3 hour session if you have not made a call/raise or fold that is not inline with the charts, there must be something wrong with you.

      And the moment your "employees" start beating the game for a decent amount, I think you might find they start leaving...

      How can it work though? i mean it takes you 1-2 days to completely memorise the SSS off by heart. Then all you need is to collect your days wages go home download the client and tell boss to shove it in morning.

      Only profitable way to run this is to pay workers less than that earn at tables.

      Well i suppose you could let them keep what they earn and pocket rake but doesnt seem that profitable. And they can always earn their own rake.

      teach people to play SSS? Sounds like you'd be committing a crime against humanity
